An Introduction

In the Exterior Drawings, although the theme is the same, the change of environment assists in showing the human form in a freer space, where rhythm is essential. Work people, tourists visiting historical buildings and the wanderers of the streets are caught up in the maddening crowd, powerless to escape and having to bear witness to the continual movement that ebbs and flows before their eyes. It is this movement, this notion of someone being caught up in the energetic flux that enhances the activity. The architecture transforms from the diverse light that is shown outside. In an instant the urban landscape had changed and the information recorded becomes exactly what I had been hoping for - an accentuated range of ideas. These will dictate the ever changing settings that I draw in, creating a completely different set of values in the large drawing, as opposed to the Interior pieces.
